The 'Broken' series by LittleChicago - T - Dresden Files

Title: Broken Mirror
Author: LittleChicago
Genre: Supernatural/Adventure
Pairing: None
Chapters: 7
Words: 23,200
Updated: October 23, 2009
Published: October 9, 2009

Status: Complete
Summary: Harry gets a phone call, post Turn Coat... and sets off on a rescue mission.

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5430338/1/Broken_Mirror

First in the series, well written. One of the best Dresden fics I've seen--and it was pretty popular here in Dresden WbA. Murphy, Molly, Kincaid, and the Jade Court add up to fun for the reader.




Title: Wrong Place, Wrong Time
Author: LittleChicago
Genre: Supernatural/Time Travel
Pairing: None
Chapters: 11
Words: 39,617
Updated: January 14, 2010
Published: November 3, 2009

Status: Complete
Summary: A follow up to Broken Mirror. Harry's old teacher is in town... for a reunion, of sorts.

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5486623/...ace_Wrong_Time

Second in the series, and, imo, better than the first. McCoy and a 'Black Council' mystery make this pretty good--as does the fanfic return of a character most DLPers love. Also well received in Dresden WbA.




Title: Broken Spirit
Author: LittleChicago
Genre: Supernatural
Pairing: None
Chapters: 11
Words: 42,515
Updated: March 26, 2010
Published: February 7, 2010
Status: Complete

Summary: Third in the 'Broken' series, Harry must deal with the consequences of 'Wrong Place, Wrong Time', as well as begin to move against the one behind the Black Council...

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5726141/1/Broken_Spirit

Third fic in the series, in which Dresden deals with fallout and lands in awkward situations. Pretty damn good so far.





Title: Broken Chains
Author: LittleChicago
Genre: Supernatural
Chapters: 11
Words: 59,257
Updated: July 14, 2010
Published: April 21, 2010
Status: Complete

Summary:Fourth in the Broken series, Harry is about to discover the Black Council is coming for him, so he needs to gather his allies. But first, he has a new case...

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5913401/1/Broken_Chains




Title: Broken Circle
Author: LittleChicago
Genre: Supernatural
Chapters: 24
Words: 150,474
Updated: November 11, 2012
Published: September 26, 2010
Status: Complete
Summary: Fifth and final chapter in the Broken series. Harry's life has changed, but one thing stays the same: the Black Council - The Circle - still have plans, and Harry's still standing in the way. But he won't stand alone. It all comes down to this...

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6354786/1/Broken-Circle




All that said, I know this series is pretty well followed and liked here, but I felt it deserved to be in the Library. 5/5 from me.

Added the last installment of the series.

LittleChicago has posted some or all of these here, and they've been extremely well-received.

5/5 by me as well.

I actually cannot remember a lot of this, so I am going to go and reread them.

All I remember is that these were 5/5 material.

Excellent reading material. As I said before, had I not known it was fanfiction I'd easily accept it as original Butcher's work. Writing style is very similar, if not indistinguishable (at least for me), writing quality is superb, plot is well-thought and captivating. I'm not sure I can say anything more.

A definite must-read for anyone who read DF books. Easy 5/5 from me.

Holy Shit. I just got done reading chapter 5 of Broken Spirit and... Damn. Just, Damn.

5/5 for all three of them.

Been reading this myself and I had no clue the third one was out and may I say damn, I mean damn, this is fucking epic work, I think Krazq said it fairly well when he said that if I didn't specifically know that this was fanfiction I would have easily bought it being Butchers work. I just finished the last chapter of his latest installment and I am beyond impressed.

The best Dresden File fanfic that is not a crossover with anything else.

Solid 5/5 from me.

LittleChicago's works are indistinguishable from Butcher's writing style.

That's an exaggeration, but no a gross one. So far: Broken Mirror: 4/5 for a few hiccups in Dresden's characterization, and Kincaid being off his kilter. Broken Record: 5/5 much improved characterization all around. I didn't really like the Black Hall, as the whole place out of time thing has been done to death, but all around very well done. I'll rate Broken Spirit when it's finished.

My original rating was based on the first 2 stories. I just went and read through what's been uploaded of the 3rd.

I just had to post again to say one thing -- if Bob's reason for avoiding Mab in canon is any less epic than the one in this fanfic, I'm actually going to be disappointed. I mean, damn, that's an awesome reason. Kick ass LittleChicago.

Sweet Jebus, I go on midnights for one weekend... and I come back feelin' the love.

Thanks to all; Sol, I appreciate the feedback. Rest assured, the Black Hall has a purpose, later on... Harry just hasn't figured it out yet.

I'll get the third one uploaded here in a few days - I think it only right I wait until after we've all read the first chapter of Changes.

Also, as far as I'm concerned, 'Broken Record' is the correct title for the second story - I just started publishing before I figured out that there was going to be more than two in this series.

I suppose I should also mention that finding out who Maeve's father is was the small reveal. Harry still has to find Aurora's father, and that should be more fun.

Title changed in the OP.

Also two things;

One: Wouldn't it be surprising and clawesome if Aurora and Meave shared a father and the reason she hated Mab/Maeve was that he ditched Titania for Mab? :awesome

Two: When the hell did you get a dick?! I could have sworn you were female.

5/5.

Stories like these are the reason I began to read fanfiction to begin with. They provide a strong parallelism to the source work, offer inventive spins on the original material, and are not so far-fetched as to warrant the label of folly. I strongly recommend his work to any Dresden fan, as this is the best substitution you're likely to find.

My few pet peeves have mostly been addressed (the parenthetical wise-cracks), and the only criticisms I have left are that some of the characters are slightly off at points (Marcone, Kincaid), in ways that make them a little too soft and revealing.

I.... I honest to Gods do not know how to respond to that. My instinct says 'snark', but I know you can outsnark me at a hundred paces, so I guess I'm just going to leave it alone.

Ragon summed it up pretty well. Chapters 5 and 6 have upped the stakes considerably.
